DUS Vs SCH Dream11 Team Probable Playing 11 And Match Report: Slumped in the relegation zone, Dusseldorf come across a languishing Schalke side today.
Ever since the turn of the year, things have only gone on a downward spiral for Schalke. 2020’s horrid curse has stricken the club as well with the side currently winless in its last five outings in the league.
It’s not only the defeats but the underwhelming and torrid manner in which they have come about in which have made for appalling viewing for the club. Shipping 3 goals to Augsburg the last time around, the side is has gone onto concede a gargantuan 16 goals in their last five outings with just the one coming up in reply.
In a rut at the moment to regress all the way down into 8th place, Schalke know they need to arrest their tanking form at the earliest if they are to make it into the Europa League next season. However, things are going to be far from any easier for them today when they face off against a rejuvenated and reinvigorated Fortuna Dusseldorf side today.
Although they are in the relegation zone, Dusseldorf are going to make for an extremely tricky and dicey opposition for Schalke today. The side’s 2-2 draw against Koln the last time around saw their fourth draw on the spin spark fresh and much yearned for life into the team.
It’s this resilliance which will see them dole out a stern test for the visiting unit with us envisaging Fortuna’s resilliance seeing them register yet another plucky draw.

DUS Vs SCH Dream11 Goal-Keeper
Florian Kastenmeier has emerged as the face of Fortuna Dusseldorf’s newly scoured fight and character. The shot stopper has been at the forefront of his team’s consummate success with the player’s tutelage helping shore up a paper thin defence.
DUS Vs SCH Dream11 Defenders
Schalke have been dreary in defence off late with the side conceding 16 goals in their last five outings. However, this might just be the encounter for them to rifle through an elusive and much needed cleansheet with Fortuna scoring a frugal 29 goals all term.
It’s this term which will see us opt for a duo from Schalke with the guile filled and determined Matija Nastasic and Saif Sane being inculcated in our framework along with four assist man Bastian Oczipka.

With an astounding 6 goals and 4 assists to his name this term, Erik Thommy will be our first name in this slot. The Fortuna man has been in titillating touch all season with the player blowing apart defences with his meticulous brand of attacking football.
He’s going to be assisted by Kevin Stoger who has come up with the four assists while we have an akin partnership represent us from Schalke as well. It’s one which constitutes of Daniel Caligiuri and Weston McKennie, two players whose acquired versatile skill set will see them seamlessly gallop their way in both the attacking and defensive component.

Fortuna’s leading scorer this season with the 11 goals in his kitty, Rouwen Hennings was always going to be an instant pick for us today. We are pairing him up with five goal man Kenan Karaman with the two set to capitalise on Schalke’s defensive flummoxed showings.
Elsewhere, having let in the most numbers of goals at 59, Fortuna are set to concede to Benito Raman from Schalke who has the four goals and three assists.
